Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream

MMMM- This was my first attempt at Ice Cream with my Kitchen Aid attachment. I know I should've just tried simple vanilla - but I was craving Peanut Butter so I went ahead with it and did it. I love my Kitchen Ait Ice Cream Attachment. Homemade ice cream is soooo good. I got this recipe from: www.!!


1/4 cup sugar

3 eggs

1 cup whole milk

3/4 cup peanut butter

3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk

1/2 cup half and half cream

2 tsp vanilla extract

12 minature peanut butter cups

- In a bowl, beat the sugar and eggs with an electric mixer until thick. Set aside. Pour milk into a saucepan and bring to simmer over low heat. Gradually pour the hot milk into the eggs while whisking. Then pour the whole mixture into the saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. Do not boil. Remove from heat and whisk in peanut butter. Allow to cool slightly, then whisk in the sweetened condensed milk, half and half and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate until chilled.

- Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker according to the mfg instructions. Fold in peanut butter cups when mixture is still soft. Transfer to a container and freeze until solid.

MMMM good.

I need to grab a handful of condensed milk cans because there are so many ice cream recipes I want to try calling for it! Thanks for sharing - it looks perfectly rich and satisfying :)
